This area has plenty of trails for families and scenery. rivers, spawning salmon (springtime), easy-medium trails, pet friendly and beauty all around.

Nice easy walk. Slightly muddy. Lots of mushrooms.

Hiked this one on Sunday with the kids and the dog, and was a nice little hike. Relatively flat, and pretty muddy in places because of the rain. The salmon were spawning so there were signs to keep away from the water (which was pretty pungent with the smell of dead fish -- our dog was in heaven!).

Easy trail that is fun to do in the fall when all the colors are out

Pretty easy and beautiful. This was the actual first hike of mine on my own and before my harder hike at Rainier. great for dogs as well.

Interesting bubbling methane at the top of the trail in the creek water. Couple of steep area with stairs and one steep area without stairs. Trail was clear but has some nettles and hogweed on the sides so don’t touch. Flaming Geyser near the parking lot past the lodge wasn’t very interesting since it wasn’t actively bubbling or burning.

Pretty easy trail with some overgrown spots. However the loop is closed off at the west side entrance.

The trail was VERY overgrown with a lot of stinging nettles. It was a nice quiet walk. The trails up the the bubbling geyser were better maintained. Overall it was ok

went with my 1 and 2 year old they liked it because it was short. vary pretty and had a playground. disappointed by the flame lol visit spring 2018

It was very pretty. Well marked trails and a lot of information spread throughout the park about the history. We did a lot more then recorded but my phone was dying. You could spend the whole day there with family! It has easy trails, picnic areas with plenty of benches, playground, and bathrooms which are kept very clean!

Nice quiet getaway.

pretty easy hike, just the first part is where all the uphill is, but shortly after that it flattens out. no nice views to see but a pretty, quiet hike through the Forest. part of the trail was closed due to hazerdous conditions, and there were 3 or 4 fallen trees I had to climb over but not too difficult, so I wasn't able to loop back around. the other trail pretty much took me back to the entrance where I had to walk back on the road to get back to my car. overall nice, easy hike.

Went yesterday, before it started to snow. Due to the impending snow did not get to explore as much as we wanted. The little bit that we did was great! It was pretty easy but did have some incline, enough to keep it interesting. My dog loved it. Good restrooms at trail head. I will definitely be back to explore more see if you really can get 3+ miles out it like another reviewer said, I do hope so.

Did this a couple weeks back. Good small hike for after brunch. Chilly day but awesome views!

Very good trail for beginners. With loop around the lake and in-and-out trails you can make it about 3.5 miles.

I guess early December is the season when salmon swim upstream to spawn and die. We saw hoards of salmon struggle upstream, saw white tendrils near the “bubbling geyser” (apparently methane?) and saw two places where geysers are but were not active nor did they even have a hint that they were active in another season, although they might be or maybe they just aren’t active geysers. Anyway, the kiddos enjoyed all the things we saw, and it was a beautiful day! We will definitely return.

great hike with my parents, husband and stepson!

Amazing peacefully

Despite the name, the Flaming Geyser is nothing more than what you see. The name, although, attractive in nature, was disappointing to say the least. The park is beautiful, though and I think that was probably the best part. I rode my motorcycle out here and there's ample parking even during the busy times. A little foot bridge will take you farther into the park and get you started on your hike but I opted out of the hike because I was just there to sight-see the geyser. There is quite a history lesson to be learned at the site which made it worth the visit. The vast openness of the field is home to many small animals including a vast majority of different species of upland birds. You'll hear them calling and chirping as you venture through the forest trails. This is a great hike for leashed dogs, kids and the elderly who still enjoy the outdoors but aren't looking for a strenuous hike. There is plenty of shade trees at the parking lots so when you return from the hike your car won't be like an oven on the inside. Enjoy the outdoors!

The name is what caught our curiosity but it's not as impress as it sounds lol we did enjoy going over to the water and skipping rocks.

Very fun and easy trail! Wet and muddy, so be careful.

It's a very narrow trail that didn't really offer much. A lot of foliage is dead this time of year. It's a good trail to jog or an easy trail for beginners.

I went with my neighbor's children, who are 7 and 9. we saw the flame less geyser, hiked to bubbling geyser, and then a longer path to the river. it was a bit over 2 miles total, the children enjoyed it thoroughly and I loved hiking it again. Discover pass required for parking.

This is a great place to take kids! My kids aren't too fond of hiking (yet); but they enjoyed this one! They left feeling like they wanted to explore hiking even more. The trails aren't to hard for them and they LOVE the geyser!

There are long trails in to the park along the river that are much less travelled.

Nice trails but really muddy. Flaming geyser had not flame.
